I unfriended you…
because I am toxic
and you are pure.
I want you to stay the same.
These might have been the exact words my friend was thinking that day. Stuff happens and you decide the person is no longer welcome in your life. Did it hurt me? Yes. Do I applaud his self sacrificing act? Um, maybe. Did it kill me to loose him? Not at all!
There is this song from the movie Page 3. It goes on like like ‘…kitni ajeeb rishte hai yaha pe. do pal milte hai, saath saath chalte hai. Jab mod aaye toh bachke nikalte hai..’ (How weird are the relationships here… you meet for a moment or two, and you walk together. When a turn comes, you leave them and go your own way..)
When I heard this song it resonated with me. Nothing is permanent. You meet people, and they leave, now or later. It seems that most of my posts here on this blog are taking a bit of cynical turn. But I am not cynical. I’ve just learnt the hard way that it is no use depending on others. They can unfriend and unfollow you in a moment. Better to be your own best friend.
Maybe you agree, maybe you don’t. Let me know what you feel about this..
